    Only player that fits financially and on court is Torrey Craig.

    No thanks to Wes Matthews.

    Instead of Okogie, rather have Bates-Diop from MIN. Better targets are DET Jonah Bolden, SAC Harry Giles, MIN Noah Vonleh, ORL Wes Iwundu, BOS Javonte Green, OKC Deonte Burton, MEM Bruno Caboclo.

    No way John Collins, Malik Beasley or OG Anunoby are obtainable without giving up Clint and/or FRP.

    This. Just because the salaries match doesn't mean those teams will give away those players for free. ;)

    Fine, you're right.

    The Rockets can definitely land John Collins, OG Anunoby, Bryn Forbes, Josh Hart, Malik Beasley, Wesley Matthews, Josh Okogie, or Torrey Craig with Nene's contract!

    Daryl about to work that magic again!

    What's more likely is we trade him into someone's cap space with cash considerations for a protected 2nd rounder.

    Taj Gibson is the guy I would grab. Solid rotation big, good defender, smart.

    Chandler, Thabo, Green and Nene works.

    Of course, this would mean going into the tax and we all know that isnt happening.

    Is Hart Josh Hart? Cause if that's the case i wouldn't write that off, Pelicans have a ton of guards, even if they trade Holiday they still have Ball, Alexander-Walker, Kenrick Williams, Frank Jackson...all these guards are younger and cheaper or on more team friendly contracts, and they still have Moore too (who is a player i'd like to get, especially if we plan to trade Gordon next season) so, i wouldn't bet on them not trading Hart (who is a decent 3&D guy btw, nothing really special).

    Collins is 100% not even available lol, i'd say the same for OG, and even if they were (again, they're not) you definitely wouldn't be able to get them if you're the Rockets, i don't know about OG, but Atlanta wouldn't even trade Collins for Capela and picks.

    I've been a fan of Taj too over the year but, would it be worth it to trade for him at this point? Personally, i wouldn't even be mad at Tilman if he refuses to pay the tax for Taj at this point, i don't even know if Mike would play him much since he can't shoot.

    Yeah, a lot of unrealistic names thrown there, the Denver guys are definitely interesting names cause the Nuggest are super deep at guard/wing, i just don't know if they will trade with us, makes more sense to trade Craig to East and Beasley to rebuilding teams.

    Tilman is going to trade Nene + future pick for Luxury Tax Saving.

    I’ll love to get Hart. He could be the missing piece to put us over the top. Great defensive player and a good three point shooter but I still suspect it’ll take more then that but u could be right given the amount of guards they have

    I am very surprised for not seeing Doncic’s name on this list.

    I need this dude to write an "8 players Rockets can land with Westbrook contract" so I can start telling myself we're about to acquire Giannis
